PIPE
In 1992, Pipe—Ron Liberti (vocals), Mike Kenlan (guitar), Dave Alworth (bass), and former Superchunk drummer Chuck Garrison—released the Ball Peen EP (Sonic Bubblegum). Kenlan then left to concentrate on Small (later Small 23, which also included Garrison).

Clifton Lee Mann of the Bad Checks came on to play guitar temporarily until a permanent guitarist could be found. Mann and Liberti worked well together, and Mann stayed. Pipe recorded their first single “You’re Soaking in It” in 1993 followed by their full-length debut, Six Days to Bellus (Jesus Christ), in 1994.

Pipe then toured with Bad Brains and soon began work on their second full-length, International Cement (Jesus Christ), released in 1995 along with the “Raceway Park” single on Amish Records. Bassist Alworth quit the band after a tour with Polvo and Archers of Loaf. Greg Adams replaced Alworth, and Pipe recorded their third album, Slowboy, released on Merge in 1997. Merge then re-released Pipe’s two earlier albums and several singles. An unfortunate series of events (Garrison’s broken hand early during a tour and an injury to Mann’s hand and eventual departure) led to the dissolution of Pipe in 1999. The band got back together in 2005 for a reunion show, and again in 2009 for XX Merge. The band continues to play live.
The Dirty Little Heaters
The Dirty Little Heaters
Reese started this band with drummer Melissa Thomas 2005 - 2006. When Melissa and Reese parted ways, Reese asked her good friend and bass player Rob Walsh to join and a few months later they nabbed sans pareil drummer Dave Perry. They had a different drummer for while, the amazing Jessica Caesar, and a keyboard player, sweet and fun Doug White, but the 3 piece band with Reese, Rob and Dave is where it's at, really.
The band is powerful. The music is raw and dirty. It's like your hair is on fire: fun for a minute, then you don't know what's going to happen. It's a mystery that sometimes ends up with someone in the hospital. Not very often, though.
